Help with German Cross trench art.

Article about: I'm trying to help a guy out on this piece. it is of no interest to me, but I said I'd look into it. the base and coins are period, the question is on the German cross that is included in it

    I don't think this is a real German cross. I think that it's real trench art spruced up with a reproduction cross. German cross carriers were known soldiers. They wouldn't ever waste their most precious award to make an ashtray out of it. Not even the biggest smoker would do that.

    Can't judge for the actual authentication but that story is just my two cents on the piece.

    He has been told in few FB groups that it is an original vet / trench art with added fake DKIG.
    This first showed up few months ago. The price on it is ridiculous.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,
